    The Devils of History: Understanding Mass-violence Through the Thinking of Horkheimer and Adorno – The Case of Cambodia 1975-19792016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Why does mass-violence happen at all? This paper takes the first steps to establish a model to answer this question and explain extreme mass-violence as a phenomenon. This paper seeks to fill a gap in the field of research, in which models exist to explain the phenomenon of violence, with cases of genocide being seen as problems or exceptions, and as such researched as individual cases rather than as part of a wider phenomenon. This paper uses a selected part of the writings of Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer to establish the basis for a model to explain extreme-cases of mass-violence. The Five-Pillar Model includes 5 social elements - (1) Culture Industry (2) Mass-Media (3) Propaganda (4) Dehumanization (5) Ideological Awareness. When these pillars all reach a high enough level of severity, conditions enable elites to use scapegoating - to divert revolutionary attention to a specific puppet group, resulting in extreme mass-violence. The Five-Pillar Model is then used to analyze an empirical case - Cambodia 1975-1979 and shows how these pillars all existed in an extreme form in that case. This paper presents scapegoating as a possible explanation for the Cambodian case.

    Knowledge and Expertise in International Interventions: The Politics of Facts, Truth and Authenticity2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge about violent conflict and international intervention is political. It involves power struggles over the objects of knowing (problematization/silencing), how they are known (epistemic practices), and what interpretations are taken into account in policymaking and implementation. This book unearths the politics, power and performances involved in the social construction of seemingly neutral concepts such as facts, truth and authenticity in knowing about violent conflict and international intervention. Contributors foreground problems of physical and social access to information, explore practices generating knowledge actors' authority and legitimacy, and analyse struggles over competing policy narratives. A first set of chapters focuses on the social construction of facts, truth and authenticity through studies of militia research in the DR Congo, politicians' on-site visits in intervention theatres in the Balkans and Afghanistan, and the epistemic practices of Human Rights Watch and comics journalism. A second set of contributions analyses the strategic side of knowledge through case studies of diplomatic counterinsurgency in Bosnia and Herzegovina, African governments' active role in the `bunkerization' of international aid workers, and authoritarian peacebuilding as a challenge to the liberal power/knowledge regime in world politics. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding.

    Children’s agency in creating and maintaining language policy in practice in two “language profile” preschools in Sweden2017In: Multilingua - Journal of Cross-cultural and Interlanguage Communiciation, ISSN 0167-8507, E-ISSN 1613-3684, Vol. 36, no 4, p. 501-531Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents results from an ethnographic study of language policy as it is enacted in everyday interaction in two language profile preschools in Sweden with explicit monolingual language policies: English and Finnish, respectively. However, in both preschools, children are free to choose language or code alternate. The study shows how children through their interactive choices create and modify language policy-in-practice. We analyze extracts from typical free play interactions in each setting. We show how children use code alternation as a contextualization cue in both settings, but with somewhat different interac- tional consequences. Children in both preschools tend to follow the lead of the preceding speaker’s language choice. Code alternation is also a means to manage conversational roles, for example, to show alignment. While the staff give priority to the profile language, the children show through their interaction that skills in both the preschool’s profile language and in Swedish are valuable.

    Knowledge production in/about conflict and intervention:: finding 'facts', telling 'truth'2017In: Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding, ISSN 1750-2977, E-ISSN 1750-2985, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 1-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article has a twofold aim. First, it discusses the contributions to the scholarly field of conflict knowledge and expertise in this special issue on Knowledge production in/about conflict and intervention: finding 'facts', telling 'truth'. Second, it suggests an alternative reading of the issue's contributions. Starting from the assumption that prevalent ways of knowing are always influenced by wider material and ideological structures at specific times, the article traces the influence of contemporary neoliberalism on general knowledge production structures in Western societies, and more specifically in Western academia, before re-reading the special issue's contributions through this prism. The main argument is that neoliberalism leaves limited space for independent critical knowledge, thereby negatively affecting what can be known about conflict and intervention. The article concludes with some tasks for reflexive scholarship in neoliberal times.

    Do Women Really Kill for Honor? Conceptualizing Women’s Involvement in Honor Killings.2017In: Deviant behavior, ISSN 0163-9625, E-ISSN 1521-0456, ISSN 0163-9625Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    So far, women’s involvement in honor killings has been attempted to explain with the emphasis on either patriarchy or the concept of hegemonic masculinity.  However, the current conceptualization of women involved in honor killings is not completely representative of all of the cases. The accurate portrayal of women’s involvement in such killings requires a broader understanding of particular circumstances of the female perpetrators, the whole dynamic behind honor killings, and of the particular relationship between victim and the perpetrator. Through reflecting on the narratives of five female perpetrators, this article aims to provide this missing focus.

    Perpetuating Fear: Insecurity, Costly Signalling and the War in Central Bosnia, 19932016In: Journal of Genocide Research, ISSN 1462-3528, E-ISSN 1469-9494, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 463-484Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the relationship between the ethnic and societal security dilemmas on the one hand, and the way in which elites seek to prevent local-level cooperation through ‘costly signalling’, on the other. By analysing transcripts of tape-recorded conversations from the Security Council of the Republic of Croatia during the period 1992–95, the author shows that the Croatian elite based its initial strategy on the widespread fear that Croats would become dominated in an independent Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was during this phase that Franjo Tuđman and parts of the Bosnian Croat elite voiced the idea that parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina should—at least as a contingency—be joined with Croatia. However, the elite in Zagreb began backtracking in early 1992, when it became clear that the international community would not allow such a turn of events. It is also shown that fears of political domination began transforming into security concerns in the second half on 1992 due to the increasing tensions between the Bosniak and Croat armed forces. The final part of the analysis shows how local elites used nationalist symbols and the presence of foreign Mujahedin fighters in the vicinity of Zenica for the purpose of ethnic mobilization in the spring of 1993.

    From the Destruction of Memory to the Destruction of People: Social Movements and their Impact on Memory, Legitimacy and Mass Violence - A Comparative Study of the West German Student Movement and the Serbian "Anti-Bureaucratic Revolution".2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Challenges to the legitimacy of established collective memory can prove so inflammatory that mass violence, ethnic cleansing and even genocide have followed in their wake. However, if few doubt that the ethno-nationalist memory wars during the 1980s collapse of Yugoslavia contributed to the real wars and ethnic cleansing witnessed in the 1990s, no previous research has been able to explain why this is so. This paper pinpoints the determinant variable and causal link between attacks on memory and subsequent mass violence (or a lack thereof). It uses a theoretical model that ties together memory, legitimacy and power to compare the cases of West Germany’s 1968 student movement and Serbia’s 1986-1989 anti-bureaucratic revolution before establishing that the level of prior state repression is one factor that determines whether memory challenges will turn violent. The paper recommends further theory building over the permeable boundary that separates state and civil society, particularly in terms of how accessible state functions are to those social movements that seek to challenge and delegitimise memory.

    “THEY SAY I AM A TRAITOR”: Contact as a Predictor for Reconciliation among Young Adults in Eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Even though peace accords are signed and peace is declared, many societies are far from peaceful. Rather than talking about peace, one could state that the conflict is moved from the battleground to another arena. Hence, some societies remain divided and polarized long after the war is over. This thesis explores contact among young adults from two towns in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina and how contact affects the reconciliation process twenty years after the Dayton Peace Accords. By using previous research social identity, socialization and intergroup contact, I argue that contact is an important step in order to break the intractability of the conflict and enhance the reconciliation process in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Qualitative data was collected through eight in-depth in with young adults aged 21 to 24 at the end of January and the beginning of February 2016. A qualitative content analysis was used to analyze the data. The main findings in this study are that the two towns, Goražde and Višegrad, do not provide opportunities for contact and are not suitable places for positive intergroup contact. In fact, contact with outgroup members in the lives of young adults from eastern BiH takes place in other areas of the country. The findings also indicate that contact has a positive effect on the factors vital in the reconciliation process, such as a common vision, sense of victimhood, and ingroup superiority. However, contact does not affect outgroup attitudes.

    De isländska sagorna har betecknats som Nordens mest originella bidrag till världslitteraturen och de kom att starkt färga den svenska historieskrivningen från 1600-talet och framåt. Men detta kulturarv tappade sin ställning under förra seklet och av många associeras det i dag med trångsynt nationalism och blodtörstiga vikingar. Respons har talat med Lars Lönnroth som hoppas på en renässans för denna litteratur i ny svensk språkdräkt.

    Ingen politisk fraktion kan distansera sig från det nationella idéarvet2015In: Respons : recensionstidskrift för humaniora & samhällsvetenskap, ISSN 2001-2292, no 4, p. 24-26Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Nationalismen och i förlängningen nationalstaten har blivit negativt laddade begrepp bland socialister och liberaler när högerpopulism breder ut sig i Europa. Men nationalismens idéarv innehåller centrala delar av det västerländska politiska tänkandet som egentligen ingen fraktion helt kan distansera sig från. Den franske filosofen Pierre Manent och författaren och vänsteraktivisten Aurélien Bernier har från olika perspektiv sökt omvärdera nationen som gemenskap.

    Intervju: Don Kulick: Refuserad på grund av hudfärg2017In: Respons : recensionstidskrift för humaniora & samhällsvetenskap, ISSN 2001-2292, no 6, p. 23-25Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vilka risker finns det när den sociala och politiska aktivismen blir styrande för forskningen? Den inflytelserike antropologen Don Kulick vid Uppsala universitet blev nyligen refuserad av ett amerikanskt förlag på grund av att han som vit forskare skrev om en svart ursprungsbefolkning i Papua Nya Guinea. Respons har träffat Kulick som menar att aktivism och identitetsfrågor har gjort antropologin mer inåtvänd och okritiskt självgod. Allt färre forskare undersöker ämnen utanför sin erfarenhetshorisont.

    Intervju: Jean-Claude Michéa: Vår tids kapitalism bärs upp av vänstern2017In: Respons : recensionstidskrift för humaniora & samhällsvetenskap, ISSN 2001-2292, no 1, p. 9-11Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vänstern har de senaste åren tappat stöd bland de lägre samhällsklasserna. För filosofen Jean-Claude Michéa är detta en naturlig följd av att socialistpartier har integrerat det liberala samhällets tilltro till ständig tillväxt. Michéa efterlyser en framstegskritisk rörelse i stället för en vänster som försöker maskera sitt stöd till det kapitalistiska samhället genom sociala engagemang för minoriteter, öppna gränser och mot rasism.

    Kulturen som banar vägen för väpnad jihad2017In: Respons : recensionstidskrift för humaniora & samhällsvetenskap, ISSN 2001-2292, no 4, p. 20-22Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Konst, musik och känslor är viktiga inslag i den våldsbejakande islamismens vardag. Men arbetet mot terrorism underskattar ofta den kulturella och estetiska sidan av ideologin. Den norske islamistforskaren Thomas Hegghammer har trängt in i jihadisternas kulturliv. Han anser att kultur är central för vår förståelse av den våldsbejakande islamismens lockelse i Väst och att det är ett felaktigt antagande att miljöerna präglas av religiös opportunism. Detta bör också få konsekvenser för hur denna islamism ska bekämpas.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det mångkulturella samhället kräver en stark politisk gemenskap för att hålla samman. Det menar Dominique Schnapper och uppmanar även svenskarna att utveckla civilsamhället för att integrera nya medborgare. Respons har träffat den inflytelserika sociologen som har vidareutvecklat det franska republikanska tänkandet kring nationen och är aktuell med en ny bok.

    Moral reflections and historical research: The Holocaust and French-Jewish historiography, 1945-19502016In: Historisk Tidskrift (S), ISSN 0345-469X, Vol. 136, no 3, p. 472-494Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the role played by the historiography of the Holocaust in French society during the second half of the 1940s. The first research into the Holocaust originated with the Centre de documentation juive contemporaine (The Centre for Contemporary Jewish Documentation), CDJC, a private archive and research centre founded by Jews in Grenoble during the Second World War to provide historical evidence and prepare legal proceedings. The analysis focuses on the underlying intentions of the historiography of the CDJC, on how the Holocaust was depicted in their publications and on the reception of their studies. The driving force behind the CDJC research was a moral urge to give reparation and justice to the Jewish people after the Holocaust. The Centre came to present and comment on documents that demonstrated the Jewish people's suffering and the perpetrators' guilt in a way similar to how the sequence of events is established in a judicial process. Through documents created by the perpetrators, the independent antisemitic policy of the Vichy regime in France was revealed. However, the judicial approach of the research limited the possibilities to understand the events both from a long term perspective and from a broader cultural and political context. Internal discussions within the Centre also show tension between scientific norms about historical objectivity and the social function of history writing within the Jewish community. The type of moral and factual historiography produced by the CDJC is especially prominent in periods of political change when there is a need to highlight the experiences of the excluded. The CDJC's research did not play a significant role in France during the second half of the 1940s, however. Despite the Centre receiving an official recognition of sorts through participation in the Nuremberg Trials, its work suffered from a credibility problem because the CDJC was a private actor researching crimes committed by the Vichy regime. The limited attention paid by the French press took note of the importance of remembering these misdeeds, but the studies never gave rise to any thorough discussion in French society of Jewish experiences or French antisemitic policies during the occupation.

    Abstract [sv]

    Franska presidentvalets fokus på ett öppet eller slutet Frankrike reducerar den intellektuella debatten till känsloutspel. Det menar den inflytelserike sociologen Jean-Pierre Le Goff och efterlyser ledare med större social kännedom om de klyftor som globaliseringen skapat.
